Of his younger crops Glorieux, the Oldenburg champion stallion of 1987, German Riding Horse champion of 1988 and reserve champion of the 1989 stallion performance test, is without a doubt his most popular descendant. The approved stallion Goldfurst is successfully competing in dressage up to Grand Prix level in the USA. 

Goldstern’s sire, Gotthard was the most popular sire of show jumpers in the seventies. Ever since a stastistical record of progeny winnings were established in 1975, he had been the leading stallion for show jumping for 7 consecutive years.

The legendary Gotthard.
For seven years, Gotthard was the leading sire of showjumpers in Germany.

Gotthard is truly one of the greats. For seven years he was the leading sire of showjumpers in Germany and his influence continues to the present day. During his time he sired over 34 licensed stallion sons. Goldstern , Goldberg, Gardestern, Goldpilz, and Godehard were all influential. Gotthard was also influential as a mare sire and he was responsible for 26 States Premium mares.
Gotthard was by Goldfisch II who was the sire of nine licensed stallion sons. Goldfisch II descends from the nineteenth century Thoroughbred sire, Goldschaum. Goldfisch II had a reputation for producing beautiful horses and good movers.
It was not until Gotthard’s daughter, Goldika (out of a Mecklenburg mare with no papers) started her sensational jumping career with Gert Wiltfang that the breeders found him so attractive. Eventually he was to produce over fifty horses to compete internationally and when in 1975, a list of top stallions was published, Gotthard was number one in terms of prize money won. Eventually his competing progeny numbered 398, with earnings of almost two million deutschmarks.
